Archival photographs in 3D, interactive screens, multimedia displays and maps — these are just some of the attractions of the newly opened Discovery Center in the Centennial Hall.

“Discovery Center” consists of several rooms. Historical Room will take us to the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. With the right décor, and music we will know the realities of the work of architects of the Peoples Hall, and we will learn more about the scale of the project. The room will surprise visitors with glittering drawers and telephones using which we will hear a conversation with witnesses of important events related to the hall.

A place with phones will for sure arouse a great interest as you can listen to the statements of people involved in building the hall. There was recorded for example a photographer Stanislav Sadowski, who “immortalized” in a film events organized in the hall in 1948 during Recovered Territories Exhibition. You can also listen to the sound of the original organs, which were standing in the hall till 1945.

The educational-cognitive room is going to bring us  the history of Wroclaw closer. Young people will find interactive games and puzzles here. In the so-called Visitor’s Center one will find animations on touch screens and sleek, spacious hall model. There will also be a gift shop, where one can buy books and toys related to the hall.

The exhibition will be tailored for the blind and disabled. Electronic guide will help to listen about the history of the hall in Polish, English and German.
